Healing Power of Foods: Nature's Prescription for Common Diseases
Healing Power of Foods: Nature's Prescription for Common Diseases
Description
From the Back of the Book:

Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, recognized that medical therapy must be consistent with the nature and design of the human body. He believed that effective health care could not be separated from nutrition. He stressed prevention of disease by strongly recommending a balanced diet with a moderate and sensible life style. Hippocrates wrote, "Natural forces within us are the true healers of disease… Everything in excess in opposed to nature… To do nothing is sometimes a good remedy". His philosophy was very much akin to the holistic health perspective of today.

Various foods not only provide nutrition for our body, but can prove to be medicinal too. Healing Power of Foods introduces all the main food groups to the reader, giving details about the medicinal uses of the commonly used foods. The tips given are simple, practical and effective. Healthy recipes at the end of the book complete the role of various foods in providing nutritional and medicinal benefits.

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
